Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, 80 million people, or nearly half of all adults under 65, were uninsured or underinsured in this country. Nearly half a million Americans went into medical bankruptcy each year. In Maryland, with the ACA fully expanded, that equated to over 347,000 people still left uninsured.
Fast-forward to 2021: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, over 27 million individuals nationwide have lost their employer-sponsored health insurance. We are in a crisis situation in this country and in this state,
On March 17th, H.R. 1976 - The Medicare For All Act was introduced by Reps. Pramila Jayapal and Debbie Dingell.
We are asking Kweisi Mfume to honor the legacy of the late and great Elijah Cummings by co-sponsoring #MedicareForAll
